‘Go, You Chicken Fat, Go’
Most of us were born in (or close to) 1956, so when we attended elementary school starting in 1961, many of us went to gym class and exercised to the “Chicken Fat” song. This record was sent to thousands of elementary schools in the early 1960s as part of President John F. Kennedy’s Council on Physical Fitness. Be forewarned: this song will stay in your head for a long time! See if you can still do the whole routine. (I still sing this song in my head each and every time I trim fat off chicken from the grocery store!) Part of the song was used in an ad for the iPhone 5, too.
